You are Powerful

If I Had Only Ten Seconds of Your Time

I would tell you…

You are not broken beyond repair. It is safe to belong to yourself.  It is not too late. You are allowed to have needs. You are allowed to want. The thing(s) that you’ve been yearning for ARE possible.

You are more ready than you think.

I can help.

Hey there, I’m Mara Glatzel.

I am an intuitive guide and energy healer.

I teach women how to reclaim and celebrate their innate power and brilliance.

I guide women home to themselves, because I believe that each and every one of us is the expert to our own experience of being a human on this planet – including how to become the vibrant, well nourished, LIT UP, creative, sexually charged, and tenderly ambitious human that you want to be.

At the core of my work is the desire to live a well-intentioned life, which means… more joy, grit, and vibrant imperfection to spare.

Is this you?

You can’t seem to stop putting everyone’s needs ahead of your own.

You still don’t have a sustainable plan for taking care of yourself, no matter how many e-courses you’ve taken, books you’ve read, or quick fixes that you’ve tried.

You are pissed off (again) because your boundaries have been trampled on (again), and are tired of waiting for the people in your life to magically know what you need.

You have been caught in the cycle of feeling like you are are too much and not enough, simultaneously.

If you’re really honest with yourself you want more for your life, but it makes you feel a little guilty and queasy admitting that out loud.

You are ready to rise up, stand in your power, and recognize your gifts.

You long to be in community with other women like you. You’re hungry for safe, cozy spaces to have deep, bullshit-free conversations about self-compassion, truth, and living with intention.

Welcome. I am so glad that you are here.

You are enough. You are allowed. You are (3)

This is me…

It was 6 am on January 13, 2012 and I was in a hotel in Vermont all alone.

I woke up with scratchy and swollen eyes from having cried the whole night before – as evidenced by the mountain of tissues on my bedside table.

I can’t keep doing this, I said out loud and in a conversation with myself

I can’t keep doing this, either.

Mara, if this was the last year of your life, what would you do with it?

I wouldn’t become a social worker. I would start my own business.

And there it was, the truth that I couldn’t avoid any longer.

When you get to the point where you are able to admit to yourself that you’re unable to keep moving forward on the path that you’ve been walking, you have a couple of choices…

  1. Summon all of your bravery and make a dramatic change, even if you don’t yet feel ready.
  2. Stuff your truth back down, pushing it away and filling yourself with something, anything else – TV, food, sex, drugs, alcohol, a string of meaningless relationships. Tell yourself that you aren’t good enough to make a change. Hide. Pretend that your current life is enough for you. Get really good at pretending. Keep feeling anxious and depressed – telling yourself the lie that the life that you want for yourself is something special that only certain, “special,” people get to enjoy.

At this point I had already been stuffing down my feelings of discontentment and fear for years.

It had worked, for a time. It had worked, until I started feeling restless beneath my skin.

In that moment in Vermont, my truths were there waiting for me. In that moment, I could feel my heart cracking open and the enormous vulnerability of admitting that the life that I had been building for myself – the life that I claimed that I wanted – wasn’t a life that made me feel good.

In that moment, after many years of doing what I thought I “should” do, being a good girl, accumulating over $100K student loan debt, and telling myself again and again that I wasn’t ready – I summoned all of my bravery and decided to start living on my own terms.

This is only one story in a string of stories about turning points in my life, but it’s an important one for me.

It represents a moment of deliberately choosing myself – my own happiness, my experience of living within my own life – over the safe choice of the life laid out before me.

It represents the moment when I decided that it was more important to belong to myself than it was to belong to anyone else.

And that is exactly what I want for you.
